So Im gonna go pick up this used ex 500 for my girl tomorow & Im wondering if anyone has any experience with these bikes and could mabey give me some hints on common problems and things to look for. I just had a brief look at it and it was getting dark, but tires are good and new chain and sprockets. The front pads need replaced but I have no idea about the back becuase they are drum brakes. Anyway any ideas might help. Also.... Am I doing the right thing getting my girlfriend into sport bikes or is this a huge mistake?
